As usual the Perth Mint are the first to issue the new edition 2016 coins.
The Australian 2016 1/20th oz GOLD LUNAR MONKEY - Series II coin is issued by the Perth Mint in Western Australia and stuck to a very high standard and finish.
The coin contains 1/20th oz of 99.9% fineness GOLD and is housed in a protective capsule to keep it’s proof like quality. This years coins have also been produced in a larger diameter than series I coins, so are entirely different.
The first Lunar series proved to be very popular, so the Perth Mint took the decision to start a second series - and this is the sixth of the 12 year cycle.
